Recife River

Recife River Cruise

The best way to discover why Recife is called the Venice of Brazil is to take a catamaran ride. While longer trips cruise far up the Capibaribe River, more optimal is a cruise around Old Recife, in which you float under handsome iron bridges and past Aurora Street and its four centuries of architectural history, from colonial to Art Deco to late-20th-century buildings. Along the way, pelicans and cranes show off Brazil's ecological richness.
